You'll find the "Sacred Cows" come in handy then!
Look for a credit card? Not in this country. As for the dole, unemployment insurance is one thing as long as it provides for the essentials of life and no more.
The problems start with universal benefits such as the state age related benefit aka the old age pension, that should be means tested.
Then all the supplementary benefits that in reality redistribute earnings.
Add child care allowance, housing support, that means people like me are paying a significant part of other people's rents - and so very much more.
A real herd of sacred cows that really does need culling.
